    That was halfway amusing though similar things have been done on more or less every hidden camera skit going, I usually find it works better as a montage though the setup on the phone was a new take. Now the farting in the hood related video that popped up at the end of it was hilarious.

    I came here about to bitch a storm, but then watched the video. That's really nice of them, it seems more like pranking the pizza place and doing a good deed at the same time.

    Not really a prank, is it? More like an 'anonymous good deed'.

    Hasn't society pranked the homeless enough? I mean, they don't have homes, how much further can the punchline go?

    Throwing milk at the bitches!

    Well, I say we wait till they all fall asleep. Roll the earth into the sun. Homeless guys wake up. Boom. They don't even have a planet.

    That's not a prank, it's a good deed. They just put the word prank in the title to get more views.

    This is going to sound pessimistic and harsh, but when people are continuously spoon fed anything (doesn't matter whether rich or poor) they will learn to be dependent and never learn independence. Sure there are those who continuously fight and actually use those handouts as a sort of investment to better themselves, but how many are just abusing the homeless system and actually are making it sort of a job (ever seen The Simpsons?) sure that is a cartoon, but they are known to poke fun at things like this. Thinking about capitalism, there is a reason these people are homeless, what have people been doing to wounded horses? (I'm not saying we kill these people) I'm saying we push these people to the "deep end of the pool" and force them to find a new path and not let begging be their last resort.

    Best lesson in life I ever got, "don't get too comfortable"

    1) "The homeless system"
    2) Using a Simpsons joke as "evidence"
    3) Borderline social darwinism
    4) Actual social darwinism

    Hot damn, you just won GBAtemp bingo. The prize is shame and laughter.

    I really doubt someone orders these homeless people food every day.
    I realize where you're coming from but still this is just one good deed it's not like they are constantly handing homeless people food just because they are homeless.

    You gotta realize, that a lot of homeless people these days, they've just had shit luck. They got beaten by the system that is the world we live in. So many layoffs, poor job employment rates globally.
